'Stunned' is the word," Obama replied in a taped appearance on "Tonight." He said he found it hard to fathom how anyone would accept lavish payments in those circumstances. "People just had this sense of entitlement. We must be the best and the brightest."
The taste of vomit will not leave my mouth. He can’t fathom how… he was stunned…he is full of crap and trying to be a movie star. Campaigning to keep his popularity up. Who cares what he does wrong as long as he is a star. Did anybody see the interviews with people trying to get In to the show? You would think Madonna or the Beatles were coming. “oh he is such a great man, I will be able to tell my children about seeing him” was the comment of one woman. WTF? Really?
Note the statement above, nowhere does he say anything illegal was done in giving or accepting a bonus, just that it is moral outrage. The congress drafted a bill to tax the people, the people not the company, who got the bonuses. Sorry guys but how many of us would turn down a pay raise or bonus in these times? Why are they going after the PEOPLE who got them? Why would they even go after the company if what they did was legal? I am outraged that AIG gave the bonuses, but if what they did was legal then not much can be done about it. Now congress wants to tax those who got them and passed this in anger and in very short time. The short time passing is one of the big things that worries me because that is why these occurred in the first place. If they had taken more time to evaluate the bailout package in the first place this could have been avoided, but instead they chose to rush it through and look how it turned out.
Boy I hope they don’t decide I make too much money. I would hate to see them pass a new law to take mine away. Hummm maybe I can convince my boss to pay me in chickens or something that will be more work for them to take away
BTW- what do you think Obummer’s visit to the Tonight Show cost us? Did anyone see what Ms.Obummer hosted yesterday? Tell me they are not wanting the spotlight and celebrity more than anything…….
